Avant is a member-owned organisation committed to supporting doctors in their professional and personal lives.
We’ve been protecting doctors for 130 years, allowing them to practise with confidence so they can keep serving our community - it's why we were founded and what continues to drive us today.
We provide an extensive range of products and services in the areas of insurance, lending, health, legal and practice management.
A small group of doctors founded Avant in 1893 to protect themselves against litigation. We have grown to be Australia’s largest medical indemnity insurer, with more than 85,000 members.
Over the last decade we have expanded our products and services to support doctors in their professional and personal lives.
As a member-owned organisation (a mutual), our members are at the heart of everything we do. Doctors are on and chair our Board to represent members’ interests, values and priorities. Our financial strength delivers sustainability, and any profits are reinvested to benefit our members and the community.

We’re taking actions for a better, more sustainable future. Being member-owned, we commit to doing business today in a way that benefits current and future generations.
We focus on five themes where we can have the most impact, creating long-term value for our members.
We pride ourselves on bringing our passion, knowledge and expertise to work every day to make a difference. As an equal opportunities employer, we value diversity and a culture of inclusivity.
If you are motivated by achievement and making a difference, Avant is a great place to progress your career.
We provide confidence to doctors so they can keep serving our community. In doing this we aspire to be the most trusted professional partner in supporting doctors throughout their lives and careers.
Our member-first strategy puts doctors’ needs at the heart of everything we do at Avant.
Remaining true to our members, doctors are at the centre of our business. We deliver greater value by designing innovative products and services that protect, advise and support our members.
We efficiently use our members’ capital to ensure long-term stability and security. Sustainable growth is driven from our core indemnity and health insurance businesses and by diversifying our portfolio and to address more member needs and make Avant more resilient.
Strong leadership and culture
We deliver on our purpose by advocating on behalf of our members and deepening the expertise of our people. Our focus remains on the group’s success and sharing accountability to deliver the strategy together.
Because it’s a mutual, Avant is looking after members and the medical community as a whole - so not only do individuals benefit, but the whole profession benefits."
